All IAFPI schools offer basic courses in Polygraph.  Some schools offer programs in other Forensic Sciences to include advanced Polygraph programs, Post Conviction Sexual Offender Testing,  Immigration Verification Status Testing, Forensic Interviewing, Interrogation, and  Forensic Statement Analysis. 

The American Polygraph Association (APA) requires accredited schools to offer their basic polygraph course over a period of at least 10 weeks.  Some schools meet this requirement with 8 weeks of classroom instruction and 2 weeks of Post Graduate assignment, while other schools offer 10 or more weeks of classroom instruction.

The minimum hourly course requirements established by the APA for the basic polygraph course are:

History
8
Legal Aspects
8
Psychology
20
Physiology

Instrumentation
16
Q Formulation
30
Techniques
60
Data Analysis
45
Interview

Ethics

Practicum
37

                     

These APA accredited schools undergo periodic strict inspections and those standards are available when a formal request is submitted. The officers who you send to these schools will, upon graduation, bring credit to your department, rather than the potential for liability which increases when you bargain for cheaper training.
